COVID Protocol

  • Due to the current COVID pandemic, please inform your child(ren)’s teacher or call the main office at 595-5400 by 8am whenever your child is/will be absent.  Please include the reason for absence.  If your child is sick, please inform us of the symptoms they are having.

  • Continue to do a Wellness Check each day before school.  Any student who is exhibiting COVID-like symptoms will be immediately isolated and sent home as well as all siblings who are not fully vaccinated regardless if they are showing any symptoms.  Proof of vaccination is required. 

  • Negative home COVID tests are NOT accepted.  Should your child need to take a COVID test, please visit your healthcare provider or any location listed on the COVID-19 State of Hawaii Portal’s test site finder.

  • If you have more than one child attending Maʻemaʻe Elementary School and one is exhibiting COVID-like symptoms, please keep all siblings who are not fully vaccinated at home until your child who is showing symptoms takes a COVID test or receives clearance from their doctor.  Fully vaccinated sibling(s) who are not showing symptoms may remain in school. Proof of vaccination is required. 

  • If your child is exhibiting COVID-like symptoms, they will be required to follow the return to school/work criteria before returning to school.

  • Please let your child(ren)’s teachers or the main office know of any travel plans your child(ren) may have.

    1. If your child is fully vaccinated (2 weeks after 2nd shot) PRIOR to travel date, they will not be required to take a post arrival COVID test before returning to school. Proof of vaccination is required.

    2. Test for COVID-19 (2 steps)

    3. Students ages 5 and older must show proof of:
           i. Safe Travels pre-travel test result and
           ii. A post-travel test result (i.e. PCR or antigen test taken after returning to Hawaii)

    4. Students under 5 years of age must show proof of:
           i. The travel companion’s vaccination or Safe Travels pre-travel test result and
           ii. Their own post-travel test result; or

    5. Stay home for ten (10) days after returning to Hawaii; or

    6. Within 90 days of COVID-19 infection, show proof of the COVID-19 diagnosis and return to school after the isolation period is complete, symptoms improved, and no fever for 24 hours without the use of medication. (i.e., no COVID-19 test or quarantine required if asymptomatic).

    • The school may request documentation of COVID-19 vaccination, test results, diagnosis, and/or travel itinerary. If health information is provided, it must be stored like a medical record. If documentation is not provided to the school, the student who traveled out of state may be required to wait 10 days after returning to Hawaii before attending class in-person.

  • If your child or someone in your household tests positive for COVID-19, please be sure to inform the school immediately.  We rely heavily on the transparency of parents/guardians to help keep our Maemae ohana and community safe. 

VACCINATION INFORMATION

  • Some individuals may experience side effects after receiving the vaccine. If your child(ren) exhibits any symptoms other than pain at the injection site, please do not send them to school until the symptoms are resolved.  If post-vaccine side effects are substantial or persist longer than 48 hours, we will require a COVID test or a doctor’s note before returning to school.

 

  • If you have more than one child attending Maʻemaʻe Elementary School and one is exhibiting COVID-like symptoms/post-vaccine side effects beyond 48 hours, please keep all siblings who are not fully vaccinated at home until your child who is showing symptoms takes a COVID test or receives clearance from their doctor. Proof of vaccination is required. 

 

  • Individuals are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after the second dose.

 

  • Fully vaccinated individuals who exhibit COVID-like symptoms will still need to follow the return to school/work criteria before returning to school. 

 

  • Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to do a 10 day quarantine after close contact/possible exposure with a positive case as long as they are symptom-free. Proof of vaccination is required. 

 

  • If an individual is fully vaccinated prior to traveling out-of-state, they will not need to obtain a negative COVID test post-arrival to return to school. Proof of vaccination is required.

 

  • Once your child has been fully vaccinated, we encourage you to send a copy of your child(ren)’s vaccination record to our School Health Aide at karen.tolentino@k12.hi.us for record keeping.
